CFP: [Renaissance] Ecofeminist collection, Early Modern Studies

Jen Munroe

Nearly thirty years ago, Carolyn Merchant proposed new ways to look at
the various mechanisms that “sanctioned the domination of both nature and
women” (Death of Nature xxi). Today, scholars have made great strides in
locating these mechanisms in various periods and places important to
American, British, and World literatures, but scholars of early modern
literature have yet to consider them at length. Ecocritical studies of
Shakespeare, Milton, and others have challenged the way early modern
scholars understand the relationship between human beings and the natural
world in the period, but these studies still tend to focus on humans in a

CFP: [20th] Essay Collection on the Sitwells

updated: 
Tuesday, November 25, 2008 - 10:49pm
Allan Pero

This CFP is for a proposed collection of essays on the works of the
Sitwells. In New Bearings in English Poetry, F.R. Leavis condemned the
Sitwells to "the history of publicity rather than of poetry." However,
the Sitwells, individually and as a trio, were not only significant
contributors to the fields of poetry, fiction, memoir, belles lettres,
art history, travel writing, and biography, they were also key players in
the popularization of Modernism and in the development of "celebrity"
and "scandal" in cultural production. This volume of essays will
contribute to a renewed interest in the Sitwells' work and their place in
the history of Modernism. The editors particularly welcome proposals that

CFP: [18th] Expanding Borders: MWASECS 2009

The Eighteenth Century ushered in a period of unprecedented expansion. We
most often think of the expansion of the physical borders: the colonies,
the exploration of new worlds and new territories, and the creation of
new countries through revolution, conquest and war. But just as the
physical boundaries were exploding, so were other long-standing frontiers
within societies themselves: social, sexual, class and mercantile
borders, among others, began to change. How did the authors and
explorers, actors and playwrights, philosophers and libertines expand the
limits and boundaries imposed upon them by the world around them? How did
they express their discontent and present their discoveries and
